Nose
Peat, but that delicate peat which reminds one of a lazy summer day not a windswept boat trip. Apricots and peaches drizzled with vanilla custard. Mocha.
Palate
Chopped hazelnuts, peat smoke, Madagascan vanilla, Tonka bean and dark chocolate. This is rich and rounded.
Finish
More peat smoke, a hint of juniper and the mocha notes again.
Comment
Some people make peaty whisky, others try to. On this offering, these guys are the former, not the latter.

Nose
Intense with a floral note at start. Peony, freesia. Then comes smoke and light soot. Citrussy. A definite toasted aroma with a creamy twist. Cappuccino. Briny. Opening on sweet notes. Vanilla, frangipane with a touch of Séville orange.
Palate
Sweet at first then drying on smoke and soot. Smokier than on the nose. Still this citrussy character. Toasted coffee beans.
Finish
Sweet and fresh with a touch of liquorice and bog myrtle.
Comment
A classic Kildalton malt. A classic Ardbeg with a little plus (the toasty note).
